  2   The Anchorage Office originally released the NAL and mailed 
it to American  via certified  mail return  receipt requested  on 
June 13, 2000.  The U.S. Postal Service certified mail card  came 
back to the Anchorage Office unsigned  on July 20, 2000, and  the 
unclaimed envelope containing the NAL came back to the  Anchorage 
Office on  July 26,  2000.  The  Anchorage Office  therefore  re-
released the NAL  and mailed  it to American  via certified  mail 
return receipt requested and regular first class mail on July 28, 
2000.  The U.S. Postal Service  certified mail card and  envelope 
containing the re-released NAL came back to the Anchorage  Office 
marked ``REFUSED'' on August 9, 2000.  The first class mail  copy 
of the re-released NAL was not returned to the Anchorage Office.
